On 18-20th September 2015, 100 people will gather to get inspired, cultivate new ideas and connect with likeminded people in a stunning natural setting, just 1 hour from London in 300 acres of rolling Sussex countryside.
At last year’s camp the torch was lit for our community. Everyone who came along, knew they were part of something truly unique and special. And we’re about to raise the bar once more.
The weekend lineup is here.
The question is, can you afford not to come?
